FanPost Friday: LLers know lots of MLB players!

Y’all are connected, dang!

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Hello and happy Friday (yes, I checked, it’s Friday). Because of the bounty of fun responses I received to last week’s prompt, I wanted to share some of my favorites this week. Turns out many LLers are 2 degrees or less away from lots of MLB players, and some of these anecdotes are pretty interesting!

So, take a break from the nearly 50 minute long 5th episode of DORKTOWN (which is incredibly good and brings into the era in which LL has been around for) and take a look at these fun stories.

Hendu Division

Poster iwasaRadio gets top billing for actually writing a FanPost about his interaction with the late Dave Henderson.

Hendu was an awesome person with a personality that could power a stadium. And actually I had a similar interaction with him at a charity baseball game in Bellevue in 2011 (the man loved to give back to the less fortunate, this is fact). He was having a great time joyfully roasting the hell out of every player from the comfort of the dugout. It’s a very cherished memory of mine. We miss you, Dave.
